Mileva Maric as an older woman.
Who was Mileva Maric? Until recently, the life of EinsteinŐs first wife was little more than a footnote in her famous husbandŐs biography. The world only learned of her existence through the first release of EinsteinŐs private letters in 1987, which offered tantalizing glimpses of a brilliant and ambitious woman who shared her husbandŐs interest in science. This project invites you to explore the facts of Mileva MaricŐs life and her role as a pioneer in the history of women in science.
